In this context, the most problematic issues in the daily work of school principals in Poland were presented. The research conducted by the Educational Research Institute indicates that from the perspective of the school principal the most problematic are administrative and legal issues, increasing bureaucratic requirements. Other problems identifi ed relate to the school staff and management of the school employees, school relations with the external environment, to a lesser extent, educational processes. Many of the described problems result from the demographic decline.
